ASL via YouTube

ASL via YouTube

This week I have been focusing on videos on YouTube by the creator “Learn How to Sign.” This creator suggests to turn off your voice when signing in ASL because when we speak at the same time, we tend to use English grammar and ASL is its own language with its own grammar. Another tip they had was never to break eye contact and compare breaking eye contact to trying to talk to someone who is one their phone the…

“Feed the Machine”

“Feed the Machine”

I remember a time when household phones were connected to the wall. We got our information for school projects solely from library books, and our assignments were all hand-written. In the last class, we discussed the YouTube video where Michael talks about what it would be like for someone if they were from a different era whose time travelled to today.

Teaching myself ASL

All of my choices for this project seem to be what other people have as their top choices as well.

A little about me:

A little about me:

Hello, I am Amanda Amy, a single 36-year-old mom to a beautiful, almost 7-year-old. I am in the last semester of my 4th year of attaining my bachelor of education degree. I am also the assistant director of a daycare where I work full-time and coach basketball in a nearby town (the one where I completed my internship). As you can tell, I like to keep myself busy! Someone recently pointed out that the children of university students who have…
